Summary
Richard Wanambi is about to go to prison for a long time. He knows what it's like. He's been there before ... In Australia's Northern Territory three-quarters of the people behind bars are Indigenous men. Lonely Boy Richard is an intimate account of one man's journey to jail. Richard lives with his family in Yirrkala, in northeast Arnhem Land. It's a proud Aboriginal community now experiencing serious social problems. Like elsewhere, alcohol abuse and violence are threatening to erode family and community life. Nami, the woman Richard knows as mum, lives in fear. She's lost one son because of grog. Another is teetering on the edge. Then there's Richard, who calls himself Lonely Boy. He's been drinking since he was 14. Just like his dad did. Now he's committed a terrible crime. Salvation may lie in a return to their ancestral homelands. That's where Nami takes her family. But for Richard, temptation lies all too close in the white mining township of Nhulunbuy. Yirrkala's night patrol team does what it can. Every night it battles on the frontline, to bring the drinkers home from Nhulunbuy and keep the grog out of their 'dry' community. But that's not enough to save Richard from himself, or his community from him. Lonely Boy Richard presents the human story behind the headlines
